This was posted to bionet.announce. I am posting it to the tox news group
for those that may have missed it.

The National Agricultural Library is pleased to announce availability
of a scientific dataset via its AgNIC server:

 Data Base of the Occurrence and Distribution of Pesticides
                    in Chesapeake Bay

                URL:http://www.agnic.org/cbp/

The data was collected and published by W. Edward Johnson, an Agricultural
Research Service (ARS) scientist.  Collaborating with Dr. Johnson, NAL has
taken his dataset, in tab-delimited format, and created an HTML version
suitable for presentation on the Web. We hoped that this product will serve
as an example of how libraries and scientists can cooperatively deliver such
information in an electronic environment.

This Web implementation relies heavily on HTML tables and viewing it requires
a table-capable browser (e.g., Netscape 1.2+, MSIE, Mosaic 2.0+).  Users
may access the data through any of four indexes: Bibliographic Citation;
Location; Pesticide Name; or Species Name.  Neither the geographic nor species
indexes were not part of the original publication. These were extracted and
generated specifically for this HTML version. Keyword search capability is
also available.

Any comments, suggestions, and ideas are most welcome and should be directed
to:
